Fair Oaks Mall will offer guests five opportunities during the holidays to have their pets’ pictures taken with Santa at the Ice Palace, locally presented by Cox Communications. The annual Fair Oaks Mall “Santa Paws” will be offered on Sunday, Nov. 25 from 8-9 p.m.; Sunday, Dec. 2 from 7:30-9 a.m. and 8-9 p.m.; and Sunday, Dec. 9 from 8-9:30 p.m. Set against the enchanted Ice Palace, the 1,200-square foot centerpiece of the Fair Oaks Mall holiday celebrations, dogs and cats with their owners and families will have the opportunity to pose for commemorative professional photos with Santa.
For those purchasing a special photo package that includes four 5x7s, four 4x6s, four 3x5s, four wallet sizes and a hi-res portrait CD, Fair Oaks Mall will donate $10 to the Fairfax County Animal Shelter.
Owners with their dogs and cats will be able to access Fair Oaks Mall during “Santa Paws” hours only from the lower level south east entrance adjacent to Todai Japanese Seafood Buffet. Whether they’ve been naughty or nice, all pets must be on a leash or in a lightweight cage or pet carrier with a harness. Dogs and cats must be up-to-date with their shots and owners will be responsible for their pets at all times.
